Dialogue and Deconstruction: The Gadamer-Derrida Encounter
Diane P. Michelfelder, Richard E. Palmer
SUNY Press, Jul 3, 1989 - Philosophy - 352 pages
Before the encounter in 1981 between Hans-Georg Gadamer and Jacques Derrida, there had been virtually no confrontation or dialogue between hermeneutics in Germany and post-structuralism in France, nor has there been since then. Part I of this book makes available for the first time in English the complete texts of the encounter at the Goethe Institute in Paris. This exchange raised such issues as Gadamer’s relation to psychoanalytic interpretation, the questionability of texts, Heidegger’s reading of Nietzsche, and the dialogical aspect of language.
Part II offers further reflections by Gadamer on the encounter itself and its relation of hermeneutics to deconstruction. Among the issues covered are Derrida’s interpretation of “Destruktion” in Heidegger, Derrida’s attack on logocentrism in Heidegger’s interpretation of Nietzsche, and the relation of Heidegger, hermeneutics, and deconstruction to dialectic.
Part III offers commentaries on the encounter from a variety of perspectives. The authors assess the original encounter as well as Gadamer’s subsequent reflections on it.
